Seahawks survive scare against South Florence

With Myrtle Beach’s perfect record and national ranking hanging in the balance, Seahawks receiver Daquarius Wilson kept his as he tip-toed down the sideline for the game-winning touchdown.

After South Florence had just tied the game in the fourth quarter just moments before, Seahawks co-quarterback Tyler Keane spotted Wilson alone down the left sideline and hit him in stride with a perfect pass.

Wilson got some great blocks as he paralleled the stripe, slipping into the end zone for a 50-yard touchdown reception and giving the No. 11 nationally ranked Seahawks a 31-24 lead it would never relinquish.

Keane completed 10-for-19 passes for 152 yards and two TDs, and QB-rotation mate C.J. Cooper was 7-for-12 for 89 yards and two scores through the air. Cooper also led the Seahawks in rushing with nine carries for 34 yards to give the two-headed QB tandem a combined 275 total yards and four touchdowns.

Before the fateful play, it was another Wilson that was the Seahawks’ top target. Jaquan Wilson caught a 17-yard TD from Keane for the game’s first TD and a 25-yarder from Cooper for Myrtle Beach to open the second half and help the Seahawks tie it at 14-all.

Cooper hit Trell Harrell for the 30-yard TD to help Myrtle Beach recapture the lead at 21-14, but South Florence was not ready to roll over. Bruins quarterback Ethan Grainger connected with Octavious Richardson for a 13-yard TD pass to tie the score at 21-all.

Myrtle Beach got a 30-yard field goal from Max Huggins to claim a 24-21 lead, but the Bruins tied it up for the fourth time in the game with a  27-yard field goal by Andrew Dimple with about 7 minutes remaining.

That’s when Keane connected with Daquarius Wilson for the game-winner and the Seahawks defense shut down the Bruins the rest of the way.
The Seahawks face another tough test next week when they travel to rival Conway for the Battle of the Victory Bell.
